United States: Moody's CMBS Delinquency Tracker
The Moody's Delinquency Tracker total delinquency rate fell 18 basis points to 3.12% in September. This month's decline stems largely from the retail property type. Only two of the six property types declined this month. Meanwhile, improvement across the country was broad-based with all four regional delinquency rates declining. The resolutions outweighed newly delinquent loans, meaning the balance of delinquent conduit loans decreased.

United States: Jobless Claims
Initial claims for unemployment insurance benefits should continue to ease recession concerns. In new filings there is no sign of a significant issue in either the labor market or the broader economy. Jobless claims inched higher in the week ended September 14, from a revised 206,000 (previously 204,000) to 208,000. Claims remain low and suggest that even though business confidence has weakened noticeably, it hasn't led firms to lay off workers. The four-week moving average slipped. The new data include the September payroll reference week and suggest job growth remained solid. Continuing claims declined by 13,000 to 1.661 million in the week ended September 7 and the insured unemployment rate remained at 1.2%.

United States: New Residential Construction (C20)
Housing starts recovered in August, gaining 12.3% above the revised July estimate and being 6.6% above total starts from August 2018. The increase in starts was led by multifamily construction, though single-family starts also showed a strong gain. Starts increased in three of the four census regions, with only the West lagging. Housing permits also increased in August, implying that the next two months should also see rising housing starts.

Homebuilder sentiment inched up 1 point to 68 in September. The builder outlook is unarguably positive, with the index reaching its highest mark this year, and is now 18 points above the 50-point threshold, signaling a healthy market. Out of the three subcomponents, current sales and buyer traffic improved this month while sales expectations declined slightly. Three of the regional housing market indexes increased while the fourth index held constant. Builders will remain in good shape in the short term.

United States: Industrial Production
Industrial production rose 0.6% in August, its third increase in the last four months. The decrease for July was revised upward. August's print was more than our above-consensus forecast. The results were positive across industries. Mining led the top-line print, rising 1.4%, while manufacturing advanced 0.5%. Above-average temperatures in August drove a 0.6% increase in utilities production. Total capacity utilization rose 0.4 percentage point and that for manufacturing gained 0.3 percentage point.

Canada: Survey of Manufacturing
Canadian manufacturing sales suffered a worse-than-expected loss in July as shipments of metals and motor vehicles contracted. Sales tumbled 1.3% from the prior month, leaving them 1.9% below their year-ago level. Manufacturers suffered another setback as the U.S.-China trade war weighs on global demand and confidence sags.

World: Moody's Analytics Survey of Business Confidence
President Trump's trade war with China and a potential Brexit have undermined global business confidence. Sentiment is down sharply across the globe since this time last year and is consistent with a global economy that is struggling to grow. Businesses' assessments of present conditions and their expectations regarding the outlook into early next year are especially negative.

A significant outflow of portfolio investment from Canadians in July generated the largest net monthly outflow of funds in 2019. Foreign investors' positions were little changed, with a net reduction of C$1.2 billion in Canadian securities. However, Canadian investors added C$12.5 billion in foreign securities to their holdings, the largest monthly increase in nearly a year.

United States: NY Empire State Manufacturing Survey
Manufacturers in New York remain cautiously optimistic based on the September Empire State Manufacturing Survey. The top-line general business conditions index fell from 4.8 to 2, keeping it just slightly above its neutral threshold for a third consecutive month. Components were mixed, with demand indicators inching lower but employment measures moving in the right direction following some signs of trouble in August. The forward-looking general business conditions index fell 12 points to 13.7, indicating that some pessimism is beginning to creep into factories' expectations.

World: Moody's Analytics Global GDP
The global economy has grown at a steady clip over the past couple of quarters, but trade tensions between the U.S. and some of its trading partners and the fading impact of the fiscal stimulus in the U.S. have weighed on growth. According to our estimates, global real GDP rose 2.5% at an annualized rate in the second quarter, compared with the 3.1% annualized gain in the prior three months. Global growth has clearly slowed over the past year, as it was up 2.6% on a year-ago basis in the second quarter, compared with 3.3% in a comparable period in 2018.

United States: Moody's Analytics Policy Uncertainty Index
The four-week moving average in our U.S. policy uncertainty index edged higher, rising from 143 to 143.5 in the week ended August 30. The four-week moving average had been trending higher since the trade tensions between the U.S. and China took a turn for the worse in early May. The trade tensions are clearly on businesses' minds, as references to trade uncertainty in the Fed's Beige Book remain high. Also, the Challenger Report noted that trade difficulties led businesses to lay off more than 10,000 workers in August.

United States: ISM Manufacturing Index
For the first time since the end of the energy rout, the U.S. manufacturing sector is contracting. The ISM manufacturing index fell from 51.2 in July to 49.1 in August, the lowest reading since January 2016 and below the 50 threshold that is consistent with expansion. The details were generally downbeat. The new orders, production and employment indexes all slipped below 50. The supplier deliveries index also declined, but this is an improvement that indicates a softer slowdown in deliveries. The inventories index increased slightly but also remained below the 50 threshold. The good news is that the ISM manufacturing index remains well above its recession threshold of 42.9.

United States: GDP
U.S. GDP growth slowed in the second quarter, according to the advance report from the Bureau of Economic Analysis. Real GDP grew 2.1%, after growing 3.1% in the first quarter after annual revision. The weakening came despite an acceleration in consumer spending growth as inventory accumulation slowed, the trade deficit widened, and fixed investment fell. Real disposable income growth slowed to 2.5% from a revised 4.4%. The saving rate fell to 8.1%, from a revised 8.5%. Revisions showed faster GDP growth in 2017, but similar annual growth in other years.

Manufacturing conditions in the 10th District weakened slightly in July with factory activity contracting for the first time since August 2016. The composite index has decreased in four consecutive months. The details were generally unchanged from the previous reading. Production levels and order backlogs remained negative, and readings for employment and the average employee workweek entered negative territory this month. Price indexes for raw materials increased from last month and from a year earlier, while prices for finished products are largely unchanged. Expectations of future manufacturing conditions continue to weaken but remain positive overall.

United States: Existing-Home Sales
Thanks to falling mortgage rates, existing-home sales for May recovered some of the pace that was lost in March and April. Total sales increased 2.5% for the month but are still down 1.1% from May 2018. Listings were able to keep up with the increase so that the inventory-to-sales ratio stayed level. Also, the increase in sales was uniform between single-family and condo/co-op homes. The May increase in sales was spread out, with all four census regions recording good sales increases for the month.

United States: Regional and State Employment
State and regional employment numbers for May provide more evidence of increasing business caution in response to slower economic growth and rising trade risks. The data do not show worrying signs of weakening in the labor market at this point, but there is broad slowing in job growth across regions at a time when most state economies are operating at or beyond full employment. In May, fewer states reported higher unemployment and lower unemployment. Year-over-year job growth is strongest in Nevada (4%), followed by Utah and Washington (2.8% each). Vermont had the lowest unemployment rate, at 2.1%, and Texas and Vermont set new lows for the series dating back to 1976.
